SPARK: Fantasy Personas

Watermarked PDF


This product is system non-specific and can be used easily with any fantasy game; no conversion or adaption required.

Game Mastery can be a challenging, grueling business. You need something to set your game apart, to make it memorable, to entertain your players in a way few others can. You need the tools to build an exceptional game in an industry full of flat, uninspired, worn out concepts. You need a SPARK.


This is the Fantasy Personas volume, providing the structure and inspiration to develop interesting personalities for PCs and NPCs throughout your game. This is not a book full of pre-generated content for you to simply read through and commit to memory. This is a focused engine to help you get your imagination started and make all of your ideas more inspired, a tool to get the most out of your own creative abilities.

This book contains:


  • Tabular system for building the framework of each personality
  • Examination and examples showing how to expand the framework into an inspired persona
  • 8 ready-to-go examples of what a persona can look like when you're finished

NOTE: The core elements of this system previously appeared in Masters Edge Resource: Personalities from Dungeon Dwellers Guild Games. If you previously purchased that volume, you may find a lot of the same material in this book, though this is a redesigned and re-released version with some fine tuning and many additional examples.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
